Cemeteries start fund to replace broken and faded monuments

Local Jewish cemeteries have started a fund to honor the memory of the deceased who have broken or faded monuments.

The fund will use 100 percent of designated contributions to replace the hundreds of monuments in older sections of the various Jewish cemeteries. Rosenbloom Monument Company is cooperating with the Jewish cemeteries in this project; the Jewish Community is invited to help through its contributions.

Participating cemeteries include Chesed Shel Emeth, New Mt. Sinai, Beth Hamedrosh Hagodol, Chevra Kadisha, United Hebrew and B’nai Amoona.

Contact Stanley Citerman director of Chesed Shel Emeth Society at 314-469-1891 or email [email protected] to donate or for further information.
